Most Overrated NHL Players

The Top Ten

1 Sidney Crosby Sidney Crosby Sidney Patrick Crosby, ONS is a Canadian professional ice hockey player who serves as captain of the Pittsburgh Penguins of the National Hockey League.

The truth is that malkin is the real face of the penguins, Crosby is thought of as the best because he is a forst liner on a team malkin carries. I believe he is the dirtiest player. Ever see a penguins game with a call against the penguins? I haven't. Also, he is known for diving and embellishing, but when he does so, the other team gets the penalty, it's just not right and is a disgrace to hockey. I can't believe he is thought of as the best. He isn't even on the top 20 right now if you ask me. He is always getting injured, and that hurts the team when your captain is gone. It's time the fans take a stand against the overprivilaged penguins and noncalls. Thank you very much for your time and keep your head up out there.

Just because Crosby is good doesn't mean he is overrated. If it wasn't for Crosby, the Penguins would not be in Pittsburgh. He led his team to three Stanley cups and four eastern conference championships

He's not a good captain and he is also inconsistent. He doesn't step up when needed hence the playoffs. He has no killer instinct and whines about everything. I'm baffled he's considered the best in the world. He's good but he's too immature to ever make an impact in my opinion. He's andy Sandberg on ice.

Crosby is really good but overrated

2 Dion Phaneuf

So sorry, I posted that when he was good, but now I think he should just retire - SayJ123

Phaneuf is the leafs' best defenceman though, although he got traded - SayJ123

He can hit, but that is about it. -

3 Connor McDavid Connor McDavid Connor McDavid is a Canadian ice hockey centre and captain for the Edmonton Oilers of the National Hockey League.

Can't call yourself the best if you can't get your team into the playoffs. End of story. Only the best can be considered and he isn't among them, points be damned.

Whines to get what she wants

Players will end her career

Shes gonna be invisible during playoffs lmao, overrated hype is a hack

4 Rick Dipietro

Injury prone. Never lived up to the hype. -

5 Todd Bertuzzi

Never the same after the Steve Moore incident. -

6 Nicklas Backstrom

So true because now he sucks - Callahan87

Ovechkin leads the caps. Without ovi he would be nothing. People also think of his "15 goals in 15 seconds commercial." Any nhl player can do that. He's nothing

If you are betting your franchise on Ovechkin you are doomed. You have to have a team! That includes at least 2 SOLID lines, 2 good penalty kill lines, an all around line that will do whatever the coach asks, and most of all A HEART! GKG! To quote an NHL rule: Rule 13 Composition of Team
A Team shall be composed of 20 players (18 skaters and two goalkeepers as per Rule 15 (a)(c)(d) - Players in Uniform) who shall be under contract to the Club they represent.

So many assits but no goals. And most of those assits r from the great 8.

7 Jason Arnott

Slow and can't score anymore. -

8 Jonathon Cheechoo

Thorton hade 92 assists that's why cheechoo did good you can't not be great on a line with one of the best passers in the league

Yeah, a lot of people say Cheechoo was good thanks to Thorton. Couldn't agree more.

People STILL expect good seasons out of him. But this just shows how AWESOME Thornton is. - booklover1

One good season thanks to Joe Thornton. All over for him now though. -

9 Bryan McCabe

Had a few good seasons way back when. -

10 Alexander Ovechkin Alexander Ovechkin Alexander Mikhailovich "Alex" Ovechkin is a Russian professional ice hockey winger and captain of the Washington Capitals of the National Hockey League.

He stands in one spot and shoots. He's a cherry picker and never passes off. He does have a cannon, but that's it. He is one dimensional. I'll take Sidney Crosby any day.

He's not even the top 100 greatest NHL players of all time

This is a joke

Crosby wanna be

The Contenders

11 Jordan Staal

Lately been big for penguins, without crosby and malkin

He is the best. People need 2 quit hating and start appreciating. GO PENS!

Should not be here

Compared to his brothers he has got nothing. -

12 Rob Blake

Passed his prime. Time to hang em up. -

13 Nicklas Lidstrom

He is amazing. And yes he is on top 5 d men of all time.

14 Alex Kovalev

Everyone thinks he's an all star. Get Real. - booklover1

15 Max Afinogenov

He's got speed, but that is about it. -

16 Eric Lindros
17 Jonathan Toews

He doesn’t play to a 4 mil standard much less a 10.5 standard.

18 Alexei Yashin
19 Marián Hossa

Yo this guy is amazing my favorite in the nhl and yes I am a hawk fan. Well the whole theam is my favorites.

HOSSA?!? HE IS UNDERERATED IF ANYTHING - Sssamuel2

20 Ilya Kovalchuk
21 Wayne Gretzky Wayne Gretzky

Come on, nobody ever dared hit him and that is why he had all the space and opportunity to score all those goals and make all those assists. If Mario Lemieux was healthy and played the same amount of games, Mario would have easily surpassed Wayne's point total of 2800 or so.

Overrated! I hate how much people adore him! He isn't as good as people say! Connor McDavid has better skills! - TheHabsFan

22 Alexandre Daigle
23 Martin Brodeur

Marty Brodeur on this list? Brodeur played in an era with lots of scoring and an era with minor scoring. 1995, he was still playing the whole stand up diving routine. Then, later in his career, he used the butterfly technique as well. Watch old clips of Marty Brodeur. He makes diving blocker saves, and in later games, makes even better saves.
